Made Up Theatre’s inspired improvisers spontaneously stage scenes of satire and slapstick in comedy shows every Saturday night. The Laugh Track City ensemble crams scads of short pieces into each 90-minute performance, entertaining audiences with Whose Line Is It Anyway?–style games culled from their suggestions. Meanwhile, the Five Play Improv cast weaves surprising, 30- to 45-minute stories with the ease of a superhero with a glue gun. The Showcase features a new twist that changes with every performance, including a fully improvised Shakespearean play, musical comedy, or live reenactment of the Battle of Bull Run. An included popcorn ensures stomachs remain as satiated as funny bones.
Budding comics eager to taste the stage lights can nurture their talents with the Made Up Theatre’s eight-week Improv A course. Students siphon sharp-witted expertise from expert laughologists, allowing them to develop skills, make new friends, and discover a world without script-induced paper cuts. This Groupon is valid for Level A classes. New classes start every four to eight weeks and meet once a week on weeknights. The next section begins January 9 and takes place across consecutive Monday nights from 7:30 p.m. to 9:30 p.m. New classes are added to the site monthly and extra classes will be added as needed to accommodate Groupon customers. Students must complete six out of eight Improv A classes in order to move onto the intensive, telepathy-enhancing Improv B course.
